So today is Person of Colour Day?
No, I’m not going to rant about commercialism or tacky attempts to create a feeding frenzy. There’s no point. I have other polar bears to fry.
We’re watching a series on the televisual box at the moment. It’s a drama on BBC which as dramas go, isn’t too bad if a little confusing. The reason I mention it is that the entire cast [with a very few minor exceptions] consists of
blacks negros Equatorials non-whites People of Colour. Why? There is nothing in the general theme of the plot that dictates the ethnicity of the cast so the whole thing is obviously a Politically Correct nod in the direction of “Inclusiveness” and to keep the non-Caucasian happy.
Some time back I noticed this trend. It’s not just on the English channels, it’s also creeping into the Irish ones too. Advertising is the worst. Apparently if you visit a fast food place here in Ireland it’s best if you’re non-white. Non-white families enjoy the fruit of several of our establishments and are even prominently present in our service industry. A casual glance at the advertisements on television would convince you that indigenous Irish are in a distinct minority.
I don’t consider myself to be racist. Granted I have that deeply ingrained primitive instinct to distrust anyone who doesn’t look like me [ask any anthropologist – it’s a survival instinct] but I am educated enough to know that there is a basic humanity in everyone [with a few exceptions]. I treat people as I find them. Provided we can converse reasonably fluently I have no problems with them at all. Local Shop in fact seems to be run by a mix of Orientals and members of the Indian sub-continent. I get along with them very well and I hope they get along with me.
However this constant barrage of obviously foreign faces being pushed in my face is beginning to take effect. It’s like the Alphabet Gender people – I hear too much of their whinging and whining. It’s gone beyond an irritation.
I’m going to have to revisit this racist thing.
We have the pocket-power to change that nonsense. Simple way is not to buy any product or service which uses disproportionate duskies in its advertising. The accountants will soon get the message to the right-on marketeers – go woke, go broke.
i have a tendency to avoid advertised goods anyway on principle. It’s as well they banned tobacco advertising as I would probably have had to quit by now.
This is disappointing. I never would have pegged you as a quitter.
I would probably have just switched brands…..
It’s definitely an imposed agenda.
E.g., the NHS is now advertising for ‘Diversity’ hires, at above-average wages. These people will influence other hires, to ensure a suitable mix of race and ethnicity. Which all sounds reasonable – the NHS is a major employer and must/should have by law a mix which reflects the national averages.
Except, there are already a disproportionate number of ‘non-Whites’ employed in the NHS! So, to fulfill their brief, these new hires should be trying to hire more white folk! Place your bets on whether this is their intention!
Positive discrimination is still discrimination, which should be avoided.
If you are unlucky enough to be hospitalised here I can guarantee you’ll be tended to by Philipino nurse and probably an Indian or Pakistani doctor.
The UK Parliament has almost ten times the proportion of MPs who are gay compared to the population as a whole. Good luck with levelling that one.
There are only 650 useless oxygen thieves in that den of Woke filth. The NHS deserves better than more non-medical ‘interferers’.
“keep the non-Caucasian happy”
Akshually, it’s not for the POCs, it’s driven by pandering to trying to make the white, middle class, woke, activists happy.
Not that they ever will be of course, but the up-side is at least we get to enjoy their misery 🙂
